ASC Quality Reporting
Expert ASC Consulting Services
What is ASCQR?
The Ambulatory Surgery Center Quality Reporting program is a complex program
with multiple reporting requirements and deadlines. ASCQR is designed
to promote higher quality, more efficient health care for Medicare beneficiaries
ASCQR is required. Will you go it alone or get experienced help?
If you do not participate or fail to meet the ASCQR requirements, your
center may see a
2% reduction to your CMS payment.
